We are excited to announce that starting November 2020, the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence (NRCDV) will be the new home of the National LGBTQ Institute on IPV.
Over the last four years, the LGBTQ Institute, in partnership with the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs, has supported the capacity of the domestic violence and LGBTQ fields to respond to the unique needs, strengths, and contexts of LGBTQ survivors.
“This new, strategic partnership provides the LGBTQ community with additional resources and opportunities and allows us to better focus on research and practice,” said Marci Taitt-Lamar, Co-Director of the LGBTQ Institute, “while addressing the unique and multiple victimizations and structural oppressions faced by LGBTQ people.”
NRCDV and the LGBTQ Institute, in partnership with the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs, will continue to address critical gaps in services and supports for LGBTQ survivors and join broader efforts to reshape the inequitable systems and institutions that contribute to violence in the lives of LGBTQ people.
“The LGBTQ Institute’s commitment to center the most marginalized queer and trans survivors aligns well with the mission and values of NRCDV. We look forward to what we will build together over the next year," added LGBTQ Institute Co-Director Carrie Lippy.
The LGBTQ Institute will be led by Marci Taitt-Lamar and Carrie Lippy. For questions regarding training or technical assistance, please contact Marci at firstname.lastname@example.org. For questions regarding LGBTQ research or policy, please contact Carrie at email@example.com.
